Well so far I have been successful in aiming my satellite 4 times in a row instantly ! So I hope giving out this info works for any one who might try this.
Yes I know just buy an automatic carry out satellite but for those of us who can afford one or don't use it enough to justify an auto aiming sat. dish .
Well anyway I have a android cell phone which I downloaded a free compass app on .
I set my dish out and leveled the stand . I used a tri-pod from and old set of halogen work lights that no longer worked .
my dish is pre-set with all the angles . skew elevation etc etc .
So I turn on my compass and calibrate which consists of waving in the air in a circle eight pattern .
Then I set the phone on the ground pointing at about 204 degrees south west
then sight down the arm that holds the LNB's on it and match the phone angle to the arm angle and sure enough I had a signal every time .
I had to "tweek" it just minor to get a better signal but has worked 4 out of four times 100%
IF any questions please ask .
